Prosecutors reject claims by Prime Minister Netanyahu’s lawyers that investigators fabricated graft charges against him and therefore his criminal indictment should be dismissed.
In a response submitted to the Jerusalem District Court, prosecutors write, “there was no flaw in the proceedings to file an indictment.”
Netanyahu’s lawyers made the request to the court on Sunday.
The prime minister is charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust. He denies wrongdoing and has claimed without evidence the charges are part of an effort by political rivals, the media, law enforcement and prosecutors to remove him from office.
